move forward? this raises the bar for romney and for obama. so i think our next debate is going to be a little more livelier, jon. jon: cory, even big obama supporters like bill maher, bill maher tweeted out during the debate that it looks like president obama doesn't even realize he is showing up here for a job interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for
with it. he keeps this act up or will we have to fight a tougher fight with obama in the next rounded? michael steele is here with us and cynthia tucker is here as well. thank you, cynthia and michael, there's an old tradition in politics you go to the fringe or hard left or right to win the caucuses and start to move slowly, the big battleship around so by labor day you're ready to confront the enemy at the center. he didn't do that. he stayed right through the summer and masterfully, wednesday, started to go i'm for pre-existing condition coverage, i'm for education and all this good stuff. >> i think part of that, you're right, in your analysis there. that's what happens politically. i think for the romney campaign they took that strategy, elongated it because they had shoring up to do with their base. >> can you pull it off? can you make that switcharoo in september. >> i think you can. >> or october rather. >> i think you can. number one. number two, we saw obama do the same thing. he was to hillary's left, brought it around, started quoting reagan in the fall, started sounding r
obama is coming in next time with a different approach. so that make it is a separate challenge and an additional challenge for obama. the other guy knows what he's going to do, he's going to be more aggressive. what does romney do next time to meet a more aggressive obama? mark? >> one thing, chris, i think that the obama campaign has kind of telegraphed their strategy by calling him the serial evader. i think they've already said that's going to be a strategy. >> is that healthy to say you're going to prosecute or come in as a prosecutor? >> i think the romney campaign has a pretty good radar screen and they have picked that up. i think they will have romney well-prepared for that. i also think it's going to be interesting with the town hall format because this is a very different kind of environment, and, you know, i think this is where romney is going to have to connect and feel people's pain and so that's naturally something that obama does well. we'll see how well romney adapts to that environment. >> i'm hoping candy crowley gets more in there. she's much more political t
obama on stage next week? >> when you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared. >> lazy. not that bright. this is the president of the united states he's talking about. he was pressed about .comment. >> did you really need to call the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> now, we've seen this disrespect right from day one. it cannot be tolerated. mitt romney must denounce a n sununu's ugly talk. joining me now, opinion writer from the "washington post," and victoria defrancesco, a fellow at the university of texas and an msnbc contributor. thanks both of you for being here tonight. jonathan, calling the president lazy. how does governor romney allow this to be said on his behalf? >> he just allows to be said. this isn't the first time governor sununu has said impertinent things about the president. remember a few months back, he said that the president didn't know what
to cornell belcher for the obama campaign coming up in the next segment, who basically argues that in trying to reach out to, you know, the small number of undecided voters, to soccer moms somewhere, had he been too negative, had he gone on the attack and called mitt romney a liar, that would have turned them off. do you buy that, david? >> no, i don't buy that. why would they be out making the arguments they're making today because they think they're effective today, why didn't they make them last night. i think gloria is exactly right. this is -- obama has had a very good campaign. he's got a very good team supporting him. but there is a tendency here for the president to sit on his lead. i think we saw that at the democratic convention. you know, the clinton speech was the highlight of that convention, not the obama speech. and here he came into this, i think he sat on his lead last night and what you learn in this game is the other guy and by the way, i disagree with gloria on one thing. i think this was a new mitt romney we saw last night. one we haven't seen before. i don't think he wa
in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's team knew that and mitt romney came into this debate determined to make it a debate. no one brought up green jobs. the moderator didn't bring up green jobs. mitt romney did to use it as a tool against the president. the president has to realize that his side and he is under the same obligation to drive the debate from his side himself. the moderator is not going to drive this debate. >> that's exactly right. that's sort of the point that i was trying to make about how the different approaches of romney and obama played very differently with this sort of a format and that romney just rolled over the format and made it about everything he wanted it to be. everything on domestic policy on which he is the weakest was just avoid
with this health care reform. >> all right. next up, mitt romneyays that under obama care, some kind of supernatural government board will decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. listen. >> he has as a model for doing that a board of people, at the government, an unelected board, an appointed board, who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. a and, true? >> john, i don't know about supernatural, but it is call the independent payment advisory board. and what this board does is it makes recommendations for certain changes. for example, it might say, you know what, we think we ought to pay hospitals less to do x, y, z procedures under medicare. so all of this is about medicare and it's about recommendations. this board does not go into mrs. smith's hospital room and says, oh, mrs. smith, we know you think you need new hip, but we don't think you need it. that's not what they do. they don't make those patient-by-patient recommendations. the concern, john, is when this board recommends reducing payments for certain things, that hospitals are going to the
established by this point why this was such a disastrous debate for obama. i'll play a quick clip here, and this is a jumping-off point to talk about what he needs to do in the next debates to avoid a repeat of this. let's play a clip of an opening romney gave him that he completely missed. >> i'm not looking to cut massive taxes and reduce the revenues going to the government. my number one principle is there's no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i want to underline that. virtually everything you said about my tax plan is inaccurate. so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for 5i trillion tax cut. i won't put in a place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan. >> that's three different moments during this debate when mitt romney noticed the bump in the set for obama. what he's saying there is he's arguing against math. the idea that you can cut faxes 20%, can you tell taxes for everybody and it's deficit neutral and faye for it by closing unspecified loop
. >>> coming up next, president obama's big lead in ohio. what's making the difference there in the buckeye state? you're watching "weekends with alex witt." we break out new behr ultra with stain-blocker from the home depot... ...the best selling paint and primer in one that now eliminates stains. so it paints over stained surfaces, scuffed surfaces, just about any surface. what do you say we go where no paint has gone before, and end up some place beautiful. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. behr ultra. now with advanced stain blocking, only at the home depot, and only $31.98 a gallon. so it can feel like you're using nothing at all. but neosporin® eczema essentials™ is different. its multi-action formula restores visibly healthier skin in 3 days. neosporin® eczema essentials™. oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see wh
that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime minister netanyahu spoke, there was a sigh of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in term

of this. i think valerie jarrett sat next to mrs. obama during the debate tells the president every day, you're the greatest orator in the history of language. i think if you hear that long enough you don't think you have to prepare for the debate and have contempt for anyone who would even dare challenge you for your job. bill: larry sabato, the university of virginia, right, he said last night that it is clear he blew off all of hess practice sessions. >> right. bill: and he said there is evidence to prove that. but it doesn't just stop with folks like al gore. ed schultz was on "the today show.". savannah guthrie asked him specifically what was going on. here he what he said. so many lies coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the president to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first. i really believe that because the president's personality is bookish, likes to explain things. will not put something in two or three or four like thing and say well, i'm done with it guthrie says, it sound like you're making excuses. he went on to say romn
to be revised way lower in the future. but in the meanwhile it's a gift to president obama. because for the next month he gets to say the unemployment rate has come down all the way under 8% to 7.8%. >> do you think what you just said about this report being weird, is that what has contributed to the conspiracy theorists? you heard jack welch talking, arguing with chris matthews on "hardball" he said twice it defies logic. it defies logic. is that because these two are so far apart? >> it does not defy logic. nobody pays much attention to the details of these reports when it's not an election year or one month before the election. this sort of thing does happen from time to time. economists know this. and they say this is not really that unusual. it is really silly and it's almost outlandish to think that the several dozen staff people who are career people, not political appointees at the bureau of labor statistics somehow polluted or had a conspiracy to cook numbers. my guess is we are going to get one more jobs rot before the november election, november 2nd four days before the election. my g
an editorial out that says what does mr. obama offer the jobless that makes them hopeful about the next four years than the previous four? we don't know. >> a tough series of questions from "the washington post." your response. >> i don't think you'll hear platitudes from the president. you're going to hear specific plans. he's talked about building the economy from the middle class out and investing in energy and education. he's got a specific plan to do it. he set the goal of creating a million manufacturing jobs and laid out a plan how to do it to end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. he has a plan to reduce the cost of college tuition and further reduce our dependence on foreign oil because of the plans he's implemented we're at a 16-year low. i think you'll see him delve into those details tonight. we'll leave the zingers to the saturday night li"saturday nig t re-enactment and mitt romney. >> i have not said zinger and now i have. is that going to be enough for the american public? >> no. it's not actually. you know, all due respect to what's going on in chicago but the
this says is that obama got his clock cleaned in the schoolyard and now he and his friends are out there the next day saying, we would have, could have, should have, and making up excuses for why ne lost. >> and even as some democrats make the charge of what they call romney's debate fabrications, they concede, the president should have pushed back on stage. >> in attempt to go sort of be cool, be presidential, he tried to stay above the frey and ended up looking detached, a bit off and listless and the president in his sort of coolness did know the take mitt romney to task. >> the democrats's big s charge, that romney has a 5 trillion dollar tax cut, he won't be able to pay for. one that will force a $2000 tax increase on middle class families. that's all based on a study by the tax policy center, which originally said romney's plan could only be deficit neutral with a tax hike on the middle class, but jim angle fact checked that for us. >> the tax policy center later changed its assessment if romney put all deductions on the chopping block, then, quote, there is no reason why tha

starting n next week, there's long way to go, it's politics, anything could happen. but right now the obama campaign is solidly and consistently ahead. tactically what that means is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. since they are clearly ahead, a good time to get those votes cast is right now. because thanks to early voting, people are casting ballots right now. so this lead that they have now in the polls can be banked. it can be turned into actual votes while they're still ahead, even if they don't end up being this far ahead by election day. iowa became the first swing state in the nation where voters are actually voting early in person. iowa has interesting rules where if you get enough signatures from your area, you can ask to have a pop-up popping place, sort of like if food places offered voting. obama voters asked for a pop-up voting place at the university of northern iowa. they had the first lady at the go vote now event. they had the first lady speak and they had the university marching band lead people from the audience of th

then senator obama of being unqualified to answer the red phone in the middle of the night. our next guest who voted for obama in 2008 says the ad rings true today. joining me now, fox news contributor and columnist for the "new york post," michael goodwin. why does it ring true today? >> we had both of them running, president obama now and then senator and hillary clinton then a senator. they were going to be the dream team when they finally came into the government together after obama won. we had them both in the government. mean while, the phone is still ringing, nobody answered. the libya incident i think is not fully appreciated for the major screw up that it represents that we had this lack of security on september 11, one of our ambassadors killed in a consulate and the fact that the white house then begins to, as i say in the column, weave this web of deceit about what actually happened. right down to sort of creating the idea that there was a demonstration that was hijacked. there was no demonstration. it was a full on assault. al-qaeda groups claim responsibility almost immediately
